Today there has been an important development for clients that may wish to make a claim for business interruption due to COVID-19.
FCA Statement

In summary, the FCA announced that it intends to obtain a court declaration to resolve contractual uncertainty in business interruption insurance cover.

This is due to concerns, raised by policyholders, about the lack of clarity and certainty for businesses, and the basis on which some insurers are making decisions in relation to claims. It has written to all insurance companies asking them to clarify their position by 15 May. It will then place the information before the courts for a decision. It has not set a timeline when this will be delivered by but has expressed urgency.
